ACRL Scholarly Communication 101 Road Show

CUNY will host the ACRL Scholarly Communication 101 Road Show on Friday, June 3, 2011 at Brooklyn College. As part of this event, two expert presenters will offer a presentation and workshop entitled “Scholarly Communication 101: Starting with the Basics,” which will focus on new methods of scholarly publishing and communication; copyright and intellectual property; economics; and open access. The program is targeted toward librarians and library staff who require a foundational understanding of these issues, including subject liaisons or those with new leadership assignments related to research and scholarly inquiry.

The two speakers for the workshop will be:

• Lee VanOrsdel, Dean of University Libraries, Grand Valley State University
• Joy Kirchner, Librarian, Collections, Licensing & Digital Scholarship, University of British Columbia Library

Following the ACRL workshop, afternoon break-out sessions will expand on issues raised by the presenters as well as related topics.
